Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on ?.

In the ancient times, Lucca adopted the arms of the various Lords ruling the town (Pisa, Castracani, Spinola, Scaligeri etc.). When the Emperor Charles IV, in the year 1369, restored the autonomy in Lucca, the local council adopted the above arms. The coat of arms per fess white and red was called "balzana", and keeps this name today.

The Republic of Lucca (1160–1805) officially used the same arms, but used a blue flag with a bend with the word LIBERTAS (freedom). This was also often incorporated as arms for the town and republic.
